pirate Graphene

WOW.... just watched a program on Graphene... this stuff is gonna revolutionise cruising for our mechanics and our navigation tools big time... no more blown phones and computers either...
BBC News - Is graphene a miracle material?

PS; no need to worry about our expensive equipment being stolen of the boat... just fold it up, wrap it round your wrist and its a watch...

if it turns out to be 200x stronger than structural steel just wrap your boat in a film of it on the outside and it can be your nav package / pc / data storage and fend off shipping containers too !
